The magazine strives to publish 2-3 set issues per year. Some issues may have a theme (i.e. stroke-related research). All submissions must have a clear connection to rehabilitation science research or practice. Authors are encouraged to write for a wide-ranging audience which includes the lay public, researchers, clinicians, and academics (professors and students). As such the writing style may be less formal than traditional academic journals, but should reflect a strong empirical research base (e.g., use of scientific evidence, clear understanding of scientific, medical and social science concepts). Authors should strive to write compelling, concise, scientifically-minded articles that will engage readers and reflect the mission statement of rehabINK – to be a knowledge translation platform for the rehabilitation science community and beyond.

Submissions can be made under the following categories:

  • Original Research
  • Commentaries/Editorials
  • News & Reports
  • Knowledge Summaries
  • Profiles
  • NEW! Letter to the Editor

*Please note: rehabINK recognizes that a rich diversity of values and perspectives are vital to the continued progression of the field of rehabilitation science. As such, rehabINK aims to reflect this diversity in the content we published by providing a forum for authors to voice a wide range of perspectives and opinions. In light of this, we would like to clarify that the perspectives and ideas expressed by authors are their own, and do not necessarily reflect those of rehabINK, it’s editors, other authors or stakeholders.*
